Here's a cute gift idea for your paper crafting friends. It's nice to make something for yourself once in a while too. That's what I did with this hanging card for my work space.
The background is created using several layers of coordinating papers in staggered sizes. For the "photo" corners I used a paper with mulitpe thin stripes. There's a layer of blue paper right behind the frog that I tore along the top and then curled the edges to look a bit more like water. The layers are all then stitched on the sewing machine.
